Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Heritage Woods of South Elgin, a BMA affordable assisted living and memory care community, is hosting an Alzheimer’s Walk on Sept. 6.
The community, which is located at 700 N. McLean Blvd. in South Elgin, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid.
“Join us as we walk to support research for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia,” said Andrea Lillie, Director of Marketing for Heritage Woods of South Elgin. “This is a cause that is near and dear to our residents, their families and our hearts.”
The South Elgin Alzheimer’s Walk will begin at 10 a.m. Hydration stations will be placed throughout the walking route, and a vibrant cheering section will encourage everyone along the way. Purple sport backpacks will be given to those who complete the walk.
A lunch fundraiser will begin at 11:30 a.m. Proceeds from the hot dog, popcorn and soda sales will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. Nearly 1 in 7 seniors are affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
The walk was planned for September, which is recognized as National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, as walks across the country are planned to raise awareness and funding for the disease.
